Hungry Planet: What The World Eats

Food brings people together. It sustains us mentally and physically. It tells stories and describes culture.

‘Hungry Planet’ is a brilliantly revealing book by husband-and-wife team Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio, literally documenting ‘What The World Eats’.

They travelled the world, from Egypt to Ecuador, to find out what the average family in each country consumes in a given week, and what it costs.

Their results were exhibited by The Nobel Peace Centre to raise awareness about ‘how environments and cultures influence the cost and calories of the world’s dinners’.
